Barbara, don't worry about needing teeth, just make sure food is soft enough to mush or small enough to swallow whole.

He eats what ever we eat anymore. If we're eating something super unhealthy I'll make him his own meal, but he eats biscuits and gravy, any form of potato, eggs, pasta (whole grain), oatmeal, cheerios, crackers, chicken, rice, steamed veggies, fruits. If I'm eating it, he will too. lol.

I feed leftovers, and I still have some pureed baby food in the freezer left over (I made my own food, didn't buy) so I will give him a little of that when I am lacking on veggies. I also still make up sweet potatos and winter squashes (acorn, butternut, buttercup, pumpkin) and freeze them, as you tend to eat them mashed anyway. Just steam in the microwave, put in the food processer, and freeze in covered ice - cube trays, then you can pull out a cube at a time when you need something healthy and quuick and don't have much in the fridge. Also, Yo Baby yogurt has a new 3-in-1 product that has fruit and veggies mixed with the yogurt which my son loves. also a good quickie healthy choice. For meat, I keep a little of the fully cooked chicken pieces on hand, and give him one or two in tiny pieces to eat. Works well when I don't have much left overs. Chicken, yogurt and some squash, and you have a quick, healthy, and balanced lunch.

For lunches I usually give my daughter leftovers. She eats anything I give her. She does have 6 teeth so I am a little more comfortable giving her things that may be harder for a baby with no teeth to eat. I usually cut things into finger looking things and she bites pieces off. I also keep a couple Gerber meals on hand just in case I don't have leftovers, since I think they are more healthy than junk lunchs like microwaveable meals.

Meat is fine regardless of the number of teeth. My son has 5 proper teeth and loves chicken especially. Its easier to eat than cuts of beef or lamb. If we wait until the molars are fully in then we'll be waiting till they're gone 2 before we give them meat!

What about fish, cheese, fruits, vegetables, cold roast chicken or other leftovers If they've got some front teeth they'll be able to bite; otherwise you can chop it up into smaller pieces. Some tinned fish like sardines, pilchards etc make for great meals and lo salt no added sugar or sweetner baked beans are a real favourite with my son. And it's a great source of protein too!

We use organic lunch meat, or I make organic chicken and every now and then I do give them hotdogs when I am running late on preparing lunch. We also use the gerber prepared toddler meals. We eat a lot of fruit and veggies with a little bit of meat.
